Let the party begin - Elton John's famous Oscars AIDS fundraiser boasts nearly as much star power as the main ceremony
WHAT would the Oscars be without a blow out after party - and everybody who's anybody wanted to be invited to Elton John's now annual AIDS foundation Oscar Party.
The legendary musician has hosted the event going back years, to raise funds and awareness for the campaign against AIDS.
A host of stars from both music and screen attended the lavish event in West Hollywood.
Among the attendees were Kylie Minogue, Miley Cyrus and the Osbournes.
It's the 23rd year in a row that the singer has hosted the bash.
Sharon Osbourne is reported to have left attendees stunned during a speech when she said: 'f**k the Oscars'.
The former X Factor judge went on to say that the fight against AIDS was far more important than the Awards bash.
